For half my day, I'm doing co-teaching with different teachers, since I teach resource room/pull out with my special ed students in the afternoon.

Ask yourself this: How would you feel if the situation were reversed and that teacher went to the principal to complain about you? I think you need to be direct with her about how you feel, but do it in a tactful way. If you approach her in an accusatory fashion, she'll be on the defensive and it could make the situation much worse. If talking to her doesn't work, then your only option is to speak with your principal.

I think you need to talk to her first and maybe find some information on coteaching to share with her. I wouldstart by telling her that this coteaching thing is new to both of you(if it is) and that you would like to

I agree with the others. Start with the teacher. See what happens. If things don't change then move on to the principal.

Is there a policy at your school on when plans have to be turned in by? In our dist. they have to be in by Thurs afternoon for principal to review for the upcoming week. If this is the case and she is missing her deadline, then yes I would go to principal (being that you have already asked her for them several times).


If there is no deadline or principal review of them then I'd make your own or wing it hte best you can for a day or two. Is there anyway you can make your own group in the back of the class and do your own thing? I'd hate to be reliant upon her (I have highly organized lol).


If none of these are really feasible then I'd sit her down tomorrow.
